Her 2010 album Downtown Church reached the top spot on multiple Billboard charts and won the Grammy for “Best Traditional Gospel Album.” Additionally, her 2015 release, Servant Of Love, garnered yet another Grammy nomination for “Best Folk Album.”
Her self-titled 2019 album won the “Best Folk Album” at the 62nd Grammy Awards and was nominated for the Libera Awards Best Folk/Bluegrass Album.

About Patty Griffin
Patty Griffin is among the most consequential singer-songwriters of her generation, a quintessentially American artist whose wide-ranging canon incisively explores the intimate moments and universal emotions that bind us together. Over the course of two decades, the 2x GRAMMY® Award winner – and 7x nominee – has crafted a remarkable body of work in progress that prompted the New York Times to hail her for “writing cameo- carved songs that create complete emotional portraits of specific people…her songs have independent lives that continue in your head when the music ends.”
2019 saw the acclaimed release of the renowned artist’s 10th studio recording and first-ever eponymous LP, PATTY GRIFFIN, on her own PGM Recordings label via Thirty Tigers, which won a GRAMMY® for Best Folk Album . As always, Griffin’s power lies in how, as writer Holly Gleason observed in Martha’s Vineyard Gazette, “her songs seem to freeze life and truth in amber.”
